What is PDR?
PDR is a cost-effective method of repairing body creases or minor dents on your car that may have been caused by a hailstorm, a car door or even acorns. To perform PDR, the certified technician will typically massage the dent out from the back panel of the vehicle, where the dent is located, utilizing PDR tools or use of the glue-pulling method to repair it.
PDR is more affordable than taking your car to a traditional auto body shop because it does not require drilling into the car panel or use of body fillers; therefore, making it also environmentally friendly. Since this process is much simpler, it also takes less time to repair (depending on the extent of the damage).
How PDR was performed on the Nissan Rogue
A 2015 Nissan Rogue, a compact SUV, was brought into the shop with quite a big dent in the quarter panel of the car.
For this job, Dan Rechichi, master technician and owner of The Dent Guy, removed the majority of the dent with the glue pulling method. As always, Dan, does a great job in getting out the initial damage. The quarter panel of a car is usually difficult to repair because of the lack of access and proper glue pulling experience is required to successfully complete the job.
Glue pulling is often mistaken for suction cups, however, it is a meticulous and very detailed method of removing dents. You can see in the footage below that Dan is constantly changing the angle of the PDR light so that he can get a clearer view of the damaged area and work on it even better. The PDR lights allow technicians to see high and low spots better and get them out with extreme precision. With some reshaping to the metal in the damaged area, Dan can clean and buff the panel to get it ready for the customer to pick up.
